Jira does not start (plugins have yet to be enabled...)


I first time installed jira-server , but when i started it "JIRA-Bootstrap INFO      [c.a.plugin.util.WaitUntil] Plugins that have yet to be enabled: (198):" this is freezing until timeout.

I gived a lot of time for loading plugins but it  doesn't work somehow... I disabled anti-virus  and configured JVM_MINIMUM_MEMORY=1G  JVM_MAXIMUM_MEMORY=2G but still same...

Please help me.

Thank you for quick respond, i gived 4000 and none of them loaded :( still says " [c.a.plugin.util.WaitUntil] Plugins that have yet to be enabled: (198)"

It can be java version or something in environment variable. I have version 10.0.2 java . Can you share your version and environment variables?

Jira does not support 10.0.2. I must be 1.8. You can find technical requirement here:


Can i use 10.0.2 for netbeans and , 1.8 for jira? 

You can

Install two Java's on your machine. set JAVA_HOME to 1.8. Launch NetBeans and choose java path to 10.0.2

I set JAVA_HOME  C:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.8.0_181   and restarted. But still says wrong JVM :(

try to execute java -version

What is your operating system?

windows x64 

java - version => java version "10.0.2" 2018-07-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13, mixed mode)

Do we need JRE_HOME ? ( like JAVA_HOME)

Have a look in the PATH variable. Try to put the path to the java.exe file from Java 1.8 first in the PATH variable.

I looked. Java 10.0.2 doesn't written in path variable. 

PATH variable has just C:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.8.0_181   and some others. (not java)

I am not sure i choose the right java 1.8  i setup jdk-8u181-windows-x64 .

As far as I remember there is something like java configuration menu option the the start menu. Try it.

or configure java. Something like this. You can set there the default java home

I fixed Java -version java version "1.8.0_181"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode)

but still says wrong JVM

I found https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-59656

If i change check-java.bat it's fixed. But i don't know. What do you suggest ?

I did same but some how it says wrong jvm . if i change check-java then the error (Plugins that have yet to be enabled) continue.....

I don't know what to do next.

I uploaded log file. (JIRA\HOME\log) https://we.tl/bNbw0zLJwT

Maybe it can give you an idea...

Can database do that? I didn't change H2...

You have a problem with the database. Try to reinstall Jira from scratch

Okay but i don't know how to connect PostgreSQL. Is there an any tutorial or a video?

You are awsome! Thank you so much!

You are welcome!

I installed postgreSQL. I used config.bat ( in jira\bin) and test connection is success. But still i get same error. 

I really feel in a nightmare.

Did you connect your new database to your Jira instance? You can find more info here:


I think i did. dbconfig file is configured. config.bat says connection is success. when i open psql and test it with \z All has my user.

Could you show your logs again?

I think there is a problem with database encoding. are you sure it is Unicode?

Did you create your database with this command?


Yes i created with that command. I think UNICODE is same. https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.0/static/multibyte.html 

I checked and i see jira did create table in database.

I was installed 9.3 postgreSQL now , i am installing 9.6.

When i setup it, it asked for " select the locale to be used by the new database cluster jira" Can this effect UNICODE ? I am a bit confused.

I updated software but nothing changed. :(

I think i found problem. Database has 175 tables but all of them is empty.

SELECT * FROM pluginstate;

this returns empty. Is that normal? 

Sorry, jira is good but really not user-friendly. 

I found my own solution. hallelujah! https://bitnami.com/stack/redmine

single click. Problem fixed. Sorry jira.

Thanks for trying @Alexey Matveev [cPrime]. I respect you.
